I would just leave robots out.  One thing I note is that the package
by default puts the binaries in /usr/games, in accordance with FHS 2.2
and 2.3 (I didn't look at any earlier versions of FHS).  Is this what
we want?   If so, fortune and robots at least should also be there.
If we use /usr/games, should it be added to people's path?
